The Walking Dead Volume 3: Safety Behind Bars

The Walking Dead, Vol. 3: Safety Behind Bars - Charlie Adlard, Robert Kirkman

Once again, just as things start to look up for the wayward band of survivors, it all goes to hell. As soon as I finished Vol. 2 and saw that a prison was their destination, I thought the setup seemed very video game-ish. It's weird and interesting to have the urge to want to be inside the story and "play" it like a game. I typically only experience that with movies. At the same time, I'm glad the early part of this volume didn't stray too long on the "cleaning out" of the prison. Also interesting is the human killing that goes on, and the disturbing totalitarianism Rick continually displays (and his wife, Lori, objects to) when it comes to doling out rules and "law." Intrigued by the idea that the living are infected without having even been bitten. And glad that Glenn's back!
